  I would like to recommend embedded XSL for XML 1.1
although this would be major version change suggestion
(e.g. XML 2.0). Currently a designer can associate an
XML document with a stylesheet through a PI. Many
developers/vendors refer to this as embedded XSL. This
is not really embedding. It is creating a hard
link/association to a stylesheet. 

Deploying your XML doc would be easier if the
stylesheet could also be defined with the XML
document. Similar to how the DOCTYPE declaration
allows a designer to embed DTD within "[]" and/or
specify a URI. Instead of sending my resume.xml and
resume.xsl to an employer, I would like to send my
resume.xml with the xsl embedded. This way the xsl is
not lost or a source of confusion for the recipient.

Please forward my suggestion to your working group for
the XML spec. I am sending this suggestion to you per
the instructions on the W3C XML Spec group's site. 


First known example of political correctness:   John Cowan
"After Nurhachi had united all the other        http://www.reutershealth.com
Jurchen tribes under the leadership of the      http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
Manchus, his successor Abahai (1592-1643)       jcowan@reutershealth.com
issued an order that the name Jurchen should       --S. Robert Ramsey,
be banned, and from then on, they were all         _The Languages of China_
to be called Manchus."
